Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed is supposed to be a “creamy powder luminizer” that gives a “superb natural glow.” In general, I think Becca’s highlighters have a really great, soft and smooth consistency with excellent color payoff and a high-shimmer finish. It’s not a highlighter for those who like their highlight subtle, as it is very bright and reflective unless you use a light hand. Champagne Pop is soft, blendable, and easy to apply with good pigmentation that can be sheered out or applied at full intensity. I find it can emphasize the skin’s natural texture at times, so it depends on the application. I like using a fan brush or a feathery, less dense highlighting blush to get a luminous glow that looks good without compromising the way the skin’s texture looks. On me, it wore for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.
If you already have Moonstone and Opal, the two layered together look identical to this. I would argue that Champagne Pop has a stronger sheen and has a few slightly larger shimmer particles in it (it seems almost looser in the pan, though not really dry or powdery).
